Just my little tips for those who want to convert phpBB 2.0.22   CH 2.1.6e into the cool SMF...

1. Cleanup your phpbb forums from Moved Topic Shadow (usually people leave a shadow links when moving a topic).
That's why we found "Error duplicate entries x for key x" when converting.

So, how i can find that shadow, i have very large forum?
Go to your phpbb database (phpmyadmin)...
Find phpbb_topics table, find topics that have any value in the topic_moved_id field, NULL value in the topic_sub_title field, NULL value in topic_first_username field.  (see my attachment image)
Delete all these rows, it's save, wont delete any of your topic.
Backup your phpbb db first if you're not sure.

2. chmod your Settings.php in your smf directory to 777.

3. Run your convert.php

4. That's all.

Oppss...
Guest can see all my hidden forums! it seems all forum permission were reset.
may be i have to change it manually..  :D

I am having phpBB 2.0.17 .. heavily moded..
there is no topic_sub_title field, NULL and topic_first_username field. but I guess topic_moved_id field is one which can tell us if it is real topic or moved topic. So I deleted all moved / shadow topics.. but guess what.. I am getting stucked on and on..
Saying..
Duplicate Key xxxx for 1

I tried removing then it comes with new.. so far it was like 15599 , if I delete this one then it comes 15598 .. if I delet that too then comes 15600 but again comes 15598. ..

Any suggesiton for me..
its been many hrs since Iam trying to figure it out

I guess, the idea of removing shadow topics by dkillers worked but I am still in problem. Its been more than 24 hrs since I am trying to convert my board.

The thing is that if my connection drops ie. my internet connection then I can't continue from last where it left conversion, if I try by pressing "Continue" then I get Duplicate Key Error.
Has happend with me 3 times and had to start all over again and again.
So I think in order to get succesful conversion I need to run it all at once without me touching anything but my poor connection drops often.

I need to get my conversion faster, for that I reduced counter to 1 in javascript, little better but I need that it should do more work at once, something 5 times as it do now at once.
I looked into convert.php with limited PHP knowledge and was not able to figure out that how to make it process more data at once.

Still conversion is going on and its been 3 and half hour already.

I have explained all here :

Would be nice if you can give some input.
